Sale of home located on residential park site

    (1)     This section applies if—

        (a)     a person owns a manufactured home or mobile home (the occupant's premises ) that is located in a residential park under a site agreement; and

        (b)     the person intends to offer the premises for sale.

    (2)     The person must not display a sign about the sale in or on the premises or in the residential park unless—

        (a)     the person has told the operator about their intention to sell the premises; and

        (b)     the sign is no larger than the maximum size prescribed by regulation.

    (3)     The operator of a residential park must not take any action to hinder the person's sale of the premises in the park if the person has complied with subsection (2).

    (4)     Without limiting subsection (3), an operator of a residential park hinders a person's sale of premises in the park if the operator—

        (a)     unreasonably stops potential buyers from inspecting the premises; or

        (b)     makes false or misleading statements about the park that affect or may affect the sale; or

        (c)     prevents the person from displaying a sign about the sale.

    (5)     An operator of a residential park is not taken to hinder a person's sale of their premises only because the operator—

        (a)     imposes conditions relating to potential buyers entering or remaining in the park that are reasonable in the circumstances; or

        (b)     has reasonably refused to consent to a proposed assignment of the person's interest in the site agreement.
